THE IMPACT OF OBAMACARE ON US FERTILITY TREATMENT

When the Affordable Care Act (ACA), commonly known as Obamacare, came into effect in the US, it allowed young adults to remain on their parents’ insurance. The impact of this legislation on the field of infertility in the States is beginning to show – there has been a rise in women who have been treated for cancer whilst simultaneously preserving their fertility, and fertility treatment for younger women has, in general, become easier to access. It has come to light that the level of detection of cervical cancer after the implementation of the ACA rose by 9%, meaning it was caught at an earlier stage and therefore was easier to treat, and the proportion of women who received treatment for cervical cancer in such a way as to preserve fertility rose by 12%. By providing free cover for women aged 19-25, Obamacare is having a huge impact on the number of women who would possibly have developed cervical cancer at a younger age, thereby drastically decreasing their chances of conception in later life.
